UN Global Survey on Trade Facilitation and Paperless Trade

To help countries benchmark and reduce the time and cost of trading across border, the UN Regional Commissions jointly conduct the UN Global Survey on Trade Facilitation and Paperless Trade. The Survey currently covers 120 countries around the globe, and 47 measures related to the WTO's Trade Facilitation Agreement (TFA), as well as emerging regional and global initiatives on paperless trade or e-trade, such as the recent Framework Agreement on Facilitation of Cross-Border Paperless Trade in Asia and the Pacific (FA-CPT). The Survey leads to the production of a Global Report and five Regional Reports, which aim at providing insightful information for policy makers to harness trade as a key means of implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The Survey is conducted in collaboration with growing number of global and regional partners, since 2015 and every two years.

Water Information Network System

Water Information Network System

IHP-WINS is an open-access, knowledge-sharing platform on water-related issues at all levels, which is freely made available by the International Hydrological Programme of UNESCO. One of the main objectives of the platform is to empower users to share geospatial data through a simple process, and to easily produce maps with information already available on the platform.

IHP-WINS provides a platform for sharing any type of information related to water. Although data hosted on IHP-WINS is mostly in the form of GIS layers that can be overlaid for users to visualize information and create maps tailored to their own needs, contributors can share information in various other formats (i.e. images, videos, PDF, webinars, etc.). Data can be of various scales (global, regional, national and local), and can relate to any aspects of water resources (quality, quantity, governance, risk, use, supply, groundwater, gender, SDG6 targets and indicators, etc.). Both quantitative data and qualitative data are welcomed on IHP-WINS.
